JOIN up with the brigade.

If you would like to get involved in the Sportsmanship Brigade, you will find volunteer and hosting information below, or you can click to make a donation.

Volunteers are the most important part of the Sportsmanship Brigade. It takes a great commitment of time to recognize and reward those who practice good sportsmanship. We thank you in advance for your interest in becoming a Brigade volunteer.  There are a few simple, yet important steps that must be taken before you can participate as a volunteer:

  • Contact us by clicking below.
  • Submit to a criminal background check (we will contact you with further details).
  • Attend a volunteer training at the St. Louis Sports Commission office.

By participating in the Sportsmanship Brigade, youth organizations and schools have the unique opportunity to effect positive change in the character of their athletes, parents, and coaches. Participation in the program is completely free, however the Brigade only visits organizations where it has permission. To become eligible, contact us below and we will get back to you for further details and scheduling information.

Although participation in the Sportsmanship Brigade is free for youth organizations and schools, the cost in both manpower and other resources is still great. You can help by making a tax-deductible monetary or in-kind donation to the program.  

Suggested in-kind donations include:

  • Gift cards and certificates (malls, restaurants, movies, sporting goods, etc.).
  • School supplies.
  • Gym bags or backpacks (under $20 in value).
